Canucks Take Pressure Off Luongo
May 5, 2009 by Big Tony
Tuesday night the Vancouver Canucks played the perfect road game against the Chicago Blackhawks in game three of their series. Vancouver got the first goal quieting the crowd and increased their lead before Chicago was able to get on the board. After scoring goal number two the energy has been sucked out of the building and the Canucks were able to spend the rest of the game protecting their lead while adding another goal in the process to boot. Chicago got on the board but could not build any momentum as the Canucks played a great team game in front of Luongo (who needs no help mind you) and will head home with no worse than a tied series. The scary thing for Hawks fans is that the Canucks won this game as a team and didn’t try to rely completely on Luongo to do it all himself. If Vancouver plays like they did Tuesday the rest of the series then Chicago will be enjoying round three in HD like the rest of us.
